UK Ministry of Home Affairs has approved the extradition of wanted diamond trader Nirav Modi to India in the PNB scam. Now it is decided to come to India. The last hearing on Nirav’s extradition took place in Britain’s Westminster Court in February. The court also approved to send Nirav to India. Judge Samuel Gooji had said that Nirav Modi would have to answer in the case going on in India. He admitted that there is enough evidence against Nirav Modi. The decision came after a 2-year legal battle. Nirav Modi is accused of committing fraud of around 14 thousand crores by taking a loan from PNB. He escaped from the country in January 2018 after the scam surfaced.
The court has also rejected the argument that Nirav Modi’s mental condition is not correct. Said that he does not think he has any such problem. The court said barrack number-12 of Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail was fit for Nirav. Nirav Modi, arrested on March 19, 2019, is accused of conspiracy to commit money laundering, tampering of evidence and intimidating witnesses.
